Editorial Reviews


"Reading a wide range of texts, he provides a sophisticated and important critique of the limits of US citizenship for Latinos." ― Melus, Vol.34

"An engaging, original, readable work. . . . Highly recommended." ― CHOICE

"Limas Latino Body promises to productively disrupt the business-as-usual of critical and scholarly practice in the still-emerging field of U.S. Latino studies; it will contribute directly to the next stage in the long process of what it itself terms Latino identity's 'becoming historical' in North American cultural, political, and intellectual contexts. For this reason alone, The Latino Body could not be more welcome, or more timely." -- Ricardo L. Ortiz,Georgetown University

"Through a bricolage of carefully crafted textual readings, Lima has produced a text that traces the relationship between corporeality and citizenship by marking the process by which the Latino body has & become historical. Situated in moments of national and bodily crisis, his archive is decidedly precise and imaginatively expansive, metaphorically rich and politically dynamic. Drawing on texts central to third world feminism, queer studies, and Latin and Latino American literatures, this work is as central to rethinking the American literary canon as it is to an invigorating remapping of Latino Studies." -- Juana Maria Rodriguez,author of Queer Latinidad
